Master of Science Programs in Marine Engineering

Compare 4 Master of Science Programs in Marine Engineering

A Master of Science is a master’s degree offered in science-based fields by various universities in many countries around the world. It is normally a two-year program that can include a blend of coursework, fieldwork and research, often culminating in a master’s thesis.

What is an MSc in Marine Engineering? Master’s degrees in this large field of engineering generally cover the study of offshore architecture and the design, creation and maintenance of these structures and vessels. Learners might study the design and operation of ships, boats, submarines and other seagoing vessels.  Coursework and fieldwork might lay down a solid foundation of understanding propulsion systems, engines and power generation, along with principles of mechanical engineering.

Graduates with an MSc in Marine Engineering are likely to understand mechanical systems at a high level, both on the job and at home. They commonly develop skills in Computer Assisted Design and have a good knowledge of applied mathematics to analyze and assess machine-driven structures, which can lead to promotions.

For matters of cost, students should contact each university they are interested in. Low-residency programs and virtual classroom options might reduce the cost of a program; however, even these programs can differ in costs from school to school.

Those who successfully complete a postgraduate program in marine engineering usually look for work in the boating industry, the military, the offshore oil industry and aquaculture. Positions could include the creation and design of new systems, maintenance of existing infrastructures and investigation of marine accidents. Specific job titles for graduates can include port engineer, ship engineer, sales engineer, port authority and marine surveyor.

This degree program is offered throughout the world, often by universities with naval connections and in countries with large ports. To learn more, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

MSc/PgDip in Offshore Floating Systems

This programme is for graduate engineers in naval architecture, offshore engineering, mechanical engineering and other related disciplines who wish to pursue a career in offshore engineering.

It provides you with practical knowledge of offshore floating systems. You’ll look at their conceptions, design and installation. You’ll also gain a sound basis of mathematical and engineering fundamentals.

With the world-wide search for offshore oil and gas moving into increasingly hostile areas of ocean and deep and ultra-deepwater, floating systems are becoming more widely used. Floating systems must be designed and built to withstand harsh environments with innovative methods and techniques being adopted to develop robust as well as economically efficient and safe structures. In meeting these challenges, concern for the environment is of increasing importance.... [-]


MSc in Water Resources Engineering

Lund University
Campus Full time 2 years September 2019 Sweden Lund

This Master's programme covers the main aspects of water resources engineering, including integrated water resources management, wastewater treatment, storm water management, coastal hydraulics and modelling of hydrological processes. [+]

Programme overview

Having access to clean water is the cornerstone for improving healthcare, increasing food supply, reducing child mortality rates, and enhancing people’s overall quality oflife. It has become crucial to develop technologies that can tackle water security challenges and meet the increasing demand. By applying integrated water resources management, surface water and groundwater can be used to cover this demand in a sustainable and eco-friendly way. These are the issues we explore with our students, as well as many other challenges such as wastewater treatment, storm water management, coastal hydraulics, and modelling of hydrological processes. The programme is broad and coversthe most important aspects of water resources engineering.... [-]

Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS
Campus Full time Part time 4 - 7 semesters September 2019 Malaysia Ipoh + 1 more

The pedagogical goal of the MSc Offshore Engineering program is to educate students to be able to take a leadership role in superior technical knowledge and application required in the offshore industry. [+]

The offshore industry is a relatively recent Industry that has rapidly expanded during the last 60 years. Challenges in the industry arise such as has never been encountered before, particularly in offshore engineering. These challenges can only be synthesized and solved by upgrading and enhancing the knowledge related to offshore engineering.

The oil and gas industry plays a significant role in Malaysia’s economy. The nation largely derives these resources from offshore reserves. It is predicted that there will be a shortage of talent in Malaysia in the oil and gas industry. This complexity is due to the large segments of workforce approaching retirement and the lack of skilled graduates from Malaysian universities. Malaysian universities have limited exposure in offshore engineering, as the focus is on general engineering in major disciplines (e.g. Civil, Mechanical, Electrical Engineering). Exposure is only gained through on the job training, requiring companies to invest a significant amount of time and money. In order to fill in the skill gap and lack of talent, it is necessary to develop graduates who are trained and versed in various offshore engineering areas.... [-]
